To preserve and encourage local arts in Gilbert, the Higley Center for the Performing Arts relies heavily on sponsorships and volunteers. Along with the small dedicated staff, sponsors and volunteers help HCPA keep the performance facility and productions running smoothly throughout each season. Support is also essential to the center’s mission to “Grow the Arts in Gilbert.” For those looking to volunteer, sponsor, or are interested in other available support opportunities, contact the Higley Center Manager Robert Zucker, robert.zucker@husd.org.

During the spring 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Gilbert’s Higley Center for the Performing Arts postponed live ticketed shows scheduled to the fall season, including acts such as The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Bellamy Brothers. To provide entertainment virtually during the facility shutdown, the HCPA developed its own local TV channel HCTV to broadcast shows featuring performers, local guests, and hosts. The online streaming broadcasts showcased entertaining piano playing, humor, storytelling, world-renowned vocalist groups, as well as Elvis and Moody Blues tributes, to name a few. The HCTV channel also hosted special event links to Higley Unified School District’s Virtual Graduations for Higley High School and Williams Field High School, both located in Gilbert, AZ.

    Little theater is cute and just right for 150 ish people. Performers feel closer with good quality lights. Sound quality can be improved a bit.

    My daughter had a dance recital here. Great venue! Very clean and well organized. The show was great and the children had a fantastic time showing off their skills. If you are looking for somewhere to host your show I recommend looking into having it here.

    We saw the play Ruth, a musical. The parking was a bit frantic but there were people directing traffic. Nice place with pretty good acoustics. Seating was okay but all areas had a good view of the stage. Recommend you get there a little early.

    Excellent venue for live music! Saw Leonid and friends and the sound was fantastic. Great acoustics. Comfy chairs and wide aisles so you don't bug someone too much if you need to get to or from your seat.

    The 2022 Miss USA Pageant couldn't have picked a better place for the event. Beautiful!
